Transformation of Nature

Mikage granite
Among the other rocks from Rokko-san were two well-eroded ones, or, should I say, two parts of what seemed to be one, so close were they in similarity. Carving them here and there came slowly and inevitably. The earth, the erosion of mountains, merges with intimations of sorrow.
